:: ALL ABOUT JAZZ ::

KOJATO, one of the most promising projects of modern Afro-Jazz, started in 2010 with an amazing feature on the BAHAMA SOUL CLUB‘s bestseller-album „Bossa Nova Just Smells Funky“.
His first track was called „Afro Shigida“ and was one of the highlights on this release.
Producer OLIVER BELZ, the man behind The Bahama Soul Club and The Juju Orchestra was deeply impressed by the combined talents of the fabulous keyboard player and arranger ANDRÉ NEUNDORF and the inimitable multi-instrumentalist and singer KOJO EBENEZER SAMUELS.

Kojo „the priest of music“ was born 1943 in Monrovia and became one of the most well known musicians from Liberia when he worked with Fela Kuti and Cecil Taylor.
Belz says: „So what you get from this man is a spirited joyful player with nothing more than sparkling energy. Spontaneous and immediate with a spot on social critism and illuminating stories full of wisdom and truth. He’s „All About Jazz“, believe me.”

So what‘s the difference between KOJATO and other Nu-, Club-, Afro- or whatever-Jazz projects?
KOJATO is better! Really, simply great music with a colourful sound, combining afrolicious Bossa-Jazz with 60s Soul and 70s Funk out of temporary fashion. The positive vibes transcends boundaries, language, colour boundaries. It‘s hard to resist. It always moves forward. It’s not doing in and out of flavour, – It’s just gonna be there.

The first album „All About Jazz“ comes with 10 tracks of finest Afro Jazz that captures the musical spirit of a lifetime. KOJATO, a world traveller in Jazz finally brings it all together: Afro-, Latin-, Soul-, Gypsy- & World-Jazz. He obviously knows all the routes Jazz can take and defines a new place for the audience to land.

Track Name: All About Jazz
ALL ABOUT JAZZ
All about jazz is like all about life. When heaven meets earth in harmonie, changing our crazy world into a world of 
beauty, peace and freedom with a foundation based on love for all. Kojato, ananasha
Track Name: Everywhere You Go Now, Kuti
EVERYWHERE YOU GO NOW, KUTI
Fela, nigerian african brother, friend and musician. Fela Anikolapo Kuti, a great african musician - priest Fela, a musical spirit and his spirit will always be around. He sang about justice, freedom of africa and all the world, freedom for all human being, from all what we created, that jails us today. He spoke and sang about the real truth, may his soul rest in peace, TARADOS and AN- Anasha and enjoy the music, rewind your thoughts and film and try to be Fela.
Track Name: Like A Gypsy
LIKE A GYPSY
We all are gypsies. From the time of birth through our journey in life till we go back home. Everybody looks for space to live, to be free, to be happy, like the gypsymusic always is. Using the tools and talents that we brought with us to this world to make a living in joy and happiness, fighting all battles with the hope to stay in love.
Track Name: Feel Sexy feat. Tina Lux
FEEL SEXY
Sex is not a tabu for me. Making love is a healing process. You feel the rhythm of life, you feel the fire, you floate and feel like swimming in the ocean with your back and watching the clouds go by and dig it. Enjoy it and keep the whole body vibrating. It´s just nice to feel sexy. I wish everbody can live this.
Track Name: That Kind Of Feeling feat. Pat Appleton
That Kind Of Feeling
... is like the fire in your body, you are happy it`s like a before-joy, getting ready to enter the tempel of love and than you make love. you become a light in the universe, you become an energy that gives all things life again. One of the best gifts from nature to ALL of us. Romancing is not a tradition, it‘s a natural way of life. Please make love, create some space for this act, seek peace. An-anasha.
Track Name: Oudo Makasan
Oudo Makasan
The Sounds of my soul sometimes, it‘s just a language of my heart - words, flying in the air to be spoken - and whoever hears it, feels it or not. Nevertheless Oudo Makasan is a person, who seeks all live long some love, light and strenght. It's a happy song.
Track Name: Afro Shigida - Original Lagos Shake
AFRO SHIGIDA
Shigida is a vision, seeing the whole wild world in the street, on the plattforms on the undergroundstations, on the schoolgrounds, in the offices, just everywhere you can think of. Hey, what a moment, feeling your body, everyone dancing, moving, spending energy, soulful joy driven by the beat of Shigida.
Track Name: Good Morning Africa feat. Britta Rex
GOOD MORNING AFRICA
Being a son of this great country - AFRICA and knowing that we have been living with the light, the sunshine, as little children learning to understand the beauty and clearness of this light. Now in awakening, realising that this light burns constantly in us with the message, that we should keep it on. Don´t give it up that good. Everything happens like it should. We just do it - we follow the light. Obladi, Oblada, life goes on my brother, my sister. I say good morning to Africa.
Track Name: Funky Man
FUNKY MAN
Funky - i believe - is a kind of musical terminology. When something smells, whether a good or a bad smell, a smell you can feel, situations where you smell the beat, that music - the smell of the sounds - the smell of the sweat of the dancing bodies - wow - a crazy vibration, THAT smells funky. Now YOU get funky ... Lot´s of fun with that Funky Man!!
Track Name: Let Loose
LET LOOSE
You know, there are a lot of things you want to change, and lots of things you want do get rid of. So much materials that we collect, objects and thoughts, so much that we feel like in a cage without doors, without exits, everything is tight. We all know, the more we try to forget the past, that brings us down in spirit, we dream of let them loose, we dream of a new beginning. With this knowledge you save your soul and life in freedom and in peace with all. Let loose, save your soul. AN-Anasha
Track Name: All About Jazz, mixed 10-track medley - FREE, POUR RIEN, GRATUITO, WÚCHÁNG DE, да́ром

Afro Shigida
Shigida is a vision, seeing the whole wild world in the street, on the plattforms on the undergroundstations, on the schoolgrounds, in the offices, just everywhere you can think of.
